Amanda is an experienced personal injury and clinical negligence practitioner. Her practice involves expertise in medical and healthcare issues and she is able to draw upon this particularly in relation to inquests into deaths in hospital.
She brings a sensitive approach whether acting for the family of the deceased or other interested parties. Amanda is also a Deputy High Court Judge (Queen’s Bench Division) and a Recorder, authorised to sit in the Crown and County Courts and in the Court of Protection.
Amanda has conducted inquests involving deaths in hospital and accidents at work.
Acting for the family in an inquest involving the death of a G.P. following routine surgery, which was described by a medical expert as a “complex multi-faceted case”, Amanda was able to secure important answers in cross-examination of the hospital’s witnesses and, following a narrative verdict, subsequently acted in the successful fatal accident claim.
